    vague meaning...

    hi,
    what does the following sentence mean?
    "When you argue with reality you lose, but only 100 percent of the time."

    It's meant jokingly, but underneath it means that you shouldn't try to fight reality because you will lose.

    hmm... this sentence belongs to a personal development advisor. so I thought she meant someting like "there is something beyond reality, so don't worry, only 100% of the time you lose, other times (whatever it is), you can win". I guess I'm talking nonsense...

    Hmm- I wouldn't read it that way, not without more context.

    It simply means "don't be unrealistic" :)
